BEN AND JESS CONNELLY (AND FAMILY) VISIT JUNE-JULY 2024

We’re really excited that Ben & Jess Connelly (and family) from Soma North America and The Equipping Group, will be travelling out from Fort Worth, Texas, in June-July this year to train, equip and encourage churches and leaders across Australia. They’ll be in each of the following cities over a long weekend (Friday – Monday). In each city they hope to run a Soma One Day on Gospel Fluency and an evening on marriage, family and the gospel, as well as connect with pastors and church leaders. Details in some cities are still being finalised. In Melbourne their time will be devoted to Soma School.

SOMA SCHOOL

Melbourne, VIC, Australia
19 – 22 July 2024
Regeneration Church Monash (118 Wellington Road, Clayton)

With Ben & Jess Connelly (The Equipping Group), Stephen Tan (Senior Pastor, Regeneration Church, VIC), Pete Greenwood (Lead Pastor, Inner West Church, VIC), and Seth Emery (Gathered Church, SA)

WHAT IS SOMA SCHOOL?

An equipping environment where missional community moves from theory to experience.

We put people in an environment to experience missional community life, to taste and see, rather than just talk theoretically about it. Every participant stays in the home of a missional community leader and sees their lives. They’re immersed in a gospel rich environment and participate in everyday mission.

Soma School equips leaders, church planters, and staff to engage in missional community life, to lead missional communities, and to lead a church of missional communities.

More about soma australia

Soma Global Areas

Soma Global Areas is a new way to support and grow Soma churches across the world. The goal is to establish new Soma Areas. These are families of churches within different countries, so that multiple churches in a nation work together, in a more organised, sustainable and accountable way than we have so far. A Global Leadership Team has been formed, led by Brad Watson. Its role is to serve, equip and champion the emerging global areas. And then, under the umbrella of the Global Leadership Team, Area Teams are being formed in each country. An Australian Area Team has now been formed, and its role is to help strengthen, care for, and establish a healthy family of Soma churches here in Australia.

VISION

We want every man, woman, and child in Australia to experience an encounter with Jesus Christ in both word and deed in the everyday. We believe missional communities are a biblical and incredibly powerful way of seeing this happen.
